Introduction to Ecometabolomics for Ecologists
Monday, 12 August - Friday 16 August 2019
The course provides a basic overview about the application of metabolomics in ecological and biodiversity research. We will explore the tools and approaches that are used to obtain, process and analyse metabolomics data. Furthermore, we will have a critical look at the possibilities and challenges of this method and discuss typical pitfalls and wrong expectations.

Summer School 2019: Transformative Human-Environment Research & Participatory Methods: From Co-production to Co-producing
Monday 16 – Saturday 21 September 2019
Human-environment research is the interdisciplinary study of how humans live in, affect, govern, reflect upon and perceive their natural environment, and how, in turn, that environment supports or constrains human life and culture. Researchers are increasingly mandated to engage more actively with politics and the plurality of epistemologies and perspectives on these challenges that exist in society. So, how may human-environment research take an active role in transformative research for and with society? This is the overall question for this summer school which will be addressed by applying science and technology studies (STS) and political ecology perspectives to participants’ own cases as well as getting first hands-on experience with transdisciplinary research methods.
Summerschool Measuring and Modelling gaseous emissions from livestock systems
Tuesday 17 - 20 September 2019
The interdisciplinary training school provides hands-on training in measuring and modelling such sources and transmissions. Common measurement methods, conventional and emerging data analysis approaches as well as emission flow modelling techniques will be presented and discussed by experienced scientists from European and international institutions.
Electron Microscopy Course – the Basics: from A to W
Monday 23- Friday 27 September 2019
